Hi, my name is Jason Gutierrez. I live with my fiancé and Chow Chow, Lexi, in the suburbs of Asheville, NC.

This is my personal blog where I write about pretty much anything interesting to me. If this is your first time here, you’ll definitely want to start with my habits guide. Habits are the foundation on which our lives are built. Plus, adopting better habits rescued me from an anxiety-stricken hell, so they have a special place in my heart. If you’re at all interested in my whole story, you can find that here.

Besides that, you’ll find a ton of other information here related to health, productivity, and self-improvement. Sometimes that’s personal experiments I’ve tried, like 30 days of 10,000 steps, or building a daily habit of writing.

Other times, you’ll find articles like how to improve yourself every dayhow to be more productive, or how to cope with stress and be happier.

Whatever the case, there’s something here for just about everybody.

If you like my writing or enjoy the break from all the typical, non-actionable doo-doo on the internet, then let’s be friends. Sign up for my newsletter to get updates on new content and other cool things I’m trying. I promise that anything I send will make your day better or happier in some way.

I also love hearing from readers, so if you have a suggestion for something you’d like to know more on – or just want to say hi – hit me up here.

All the best,
